This procedure won't root your phone, it will allow you to unlock it using the engineering bootloader and our app.
If you prefer to root your phone please follow these instructions instead: https://idoneapps.com/forum/index.php?topic=648.0

1.) Download and install our app from here.

2.) Purchase the unlock from within the app.

3.) Go to Settings > About Device > and tap "Build Number" 7 times to enable "Developer Menu",
      then enable "USB Debugging" in the Developer Menu. Connect USB and more drivers may install.

4.) Connect the phone to the PC using an USB cable and wait for all drivers to finish installing.

5.) Browse into the phone folder and copy the IMEI.unlock file to somewhere on your computer (Desktop is fine).



6.) Power off phone completely.

7.) Hold Home and Volume-(down), keep them pressed and power the phone on.

8.) Press Volume+(up) when prompted to enter "Downloading Mode"

        ResellerTools will validate your purchase and enable/show "Unlock Sprint S8/+" button (it works with the S7 too). Press the button and wait a moment.
